I'd say that the first thing to discuss is whether it _should_ say 15:55
instead of 15:54, and that discussion should be on the kde-pim list, not
kde-core-devel. I wouldn't normally expect rounding to be applied to
times, so if any rounding needs to be done, IMHO it should be done by
KMail before calling the function in klocale.cpp.
